The Winter edition of Real Cheap Eats is up and live. Thanks to the efforts of James Boo and his team, this guide to the tastiest meals in the five boroughs under $10, has a 22 dish winter update, including my contribution, the $6 whole roasted chicken from Brancaccio's...
As I write this post I've just finished a meal consisting of my second whole roasted chicken from Brancaccio's for the week. Between working full time, writing for three blogs and working on our book, the amount of time I have to spend in the kitchen is severely limited. Did I mention that my oven is also completely broken? Thankfully Brancaccio's has saved me more than once with their dependably delicious and thrifty $6 whole roasted chicken. Dressed with lemon, garlic, herbs and spices, then roasted perfectly so the skin gets crispy but the meat remains tender and moist--never dry, even if I weren't so busy I'd still want Brancaccio's to make my chicken for me.
